    Hi There, I have a 330D M-Sport 2006 with xenon's and angel eyes (standard)

    the case for the bulbs on the back of the headlamp looks like to much to take off just to see what bulbs I need - Lazy.

    I wanted to know what bulb type is used to light up the angel eyes??

    For a 3 series, you probably have CCFL...florescent so no bulbs.

    In that case, I believe you have after market headlamps fitted with angels built in. I will PM a fellow Moderator who has the same lamps on his car...he will be able to help you

    I'm 99% sure the headlights are standard as the car is fully loaded with all extras.

    the angel eyes light up but I want them to light up white instead of that normal yellow. its a nice contrast with the zenon on but I want the eyes to be white.

    when you look at the ends of the eye they cross over (the beggining and end) then dissappear into the bottom of the headlamp. I had a quick look around the back of the headlamp but its a bit fiddly to ge the covers off.

    There is one big cover directly behind the same level as the head lights and also one smaller cover just beneth but I don't know where the actual bulb is for the eyes.

    There are two eye on each headlight by the way.
